Seems like someone will be chasing down the “green fairy” this weekend in Pandora.
You have to love Gearbox and their ingenious ways to keep you wanting to come back to Pandora and Borderlands 2. This weekend you get to celebrate the Luck of the Zafords with special in-game events and gear.
( From Gearboxsoftware.com )
Each year, around this time, the Zaford clan takes a break from their war with the Hodunk bandit family to celebrate their good fortune and honor those that have passed on, such as that time Scooter buried their son alive in a shallow grave.
During this time, those who play Borderlands 2 while connected to the internet will see a temporary increase in the drop rates and rarity of shields! Plus, Absorb shields will have a better chance to absorb enemy bullets and Booster shields will have a higher chance of dropping a shield Booster when damaged.
In addition, the Zafords have prepared special gifts! To receive your celebratory Zaford gear, including special green skins for each character and a Chulainn SMG that will be the the same level as (and appear in the backpack of) the first character you load, enter the SHiFT codes below into Borderlands 2:
PC / Mac Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: KTCBJ-C9RTC-BSFTJ-33TT3-FBWHF
Xbox 360 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: KJCJ3-RCWC6-5K9BF-WFBT3-3WFKK
PlayStation 3 Zaford Gear SHiFT Code: CTK3B-99K3J-XXKW3-ZTWTJ-HJH5J
Definitely worth your time to redeem the Shift Key codes for the weekends events. Plus what does it hurt to get free stuff. Just remember the codes will only be active from Thursday, March 14 through Sunday, March 17th.
As for me I will be playing a mixture of this and the Overrun demo so I can build my XP before the Gears of War: Judgment release on Tuesday.
